Instructions and Definitions

An Anonymous Client is a person seeking information, orientation or referral services and does not want to provide you (or you doesn't want to record) detailed personal information such as first and last name. In cases like this, OCMS will create an Anonymous Client profile where Sessions are not tracked and the (limited) Client Profile is not easily searchable.

Anonymous Clients are considered New Clients each time a session is created and/or a service is provided.

An Anonymous Client Profile cannot be changed to a Named Client.  If changes are required a New Named client must be created. Services cannot be transferred
